Popular Computing Weekly

Popular Computing Weekly was a computer magazine in the UK published from the early 1980s until the early 1990s. It was sometimes referred to as PCW (although that abbreviation is more commonly associated with Personal Computer World magazine). Its subject range was general-purpose, covering gaming, business, and productivity software. During 1989 it incorporated Computer Gamesweek. It was noteworthy for being the only national weekly computer magazine of the time, and for its backpage being dominated by an advertisement in the form of a comic strip (Piman) by the firm Automata between the years 1983 and 1986. A further noteworthy feature of the early editions was the high-quality artwork on the magazine covers. These had disappeared by 1983.
